of being disappointed. A lot of people have been saying they feel like we're having twins. And I'm perfectly fine with the idea (of course I say that now, but if it were to be true I'd freak, I'm sure!) but I kinda want it to happen and I'm afraid I will be disappointed when we go to the U/s and theres only one lol No matter what if there is 1-3 and they have heartbeats I'll be SO happy. I just want a healthy happy baby. We tried for so long and I honestly thought it would never happen. So I'm really grateful and so happy. But I am still scared in the back of my head Ill be a little disappointed. Does that Make sense?

I get it, I always thought it would be cool to have twins, I had twin brothers. But at this point I will flip if I have twins because I only have 7 seats in my van, and I would not have enough seats for our whole family lol and I JUST bought this van, im not giving it up!

Aww, I know what you mean. Before I got pregnant, I thought I'd be so disappointed if we weren't have a boy, but I have basically convinced myself we're having a girl and I've allowed myself to get excited by planning for her and shopping online. Then again, my instinct could be wrong, lol.

I'd be shocked if we were having twins, though it's possible. My sister was pregnant with twins (though one passed while in utero).

I totally understand you.

I deep down want twins... It was like when we had DD we wanted a boy and turns out a girl, we were let down but everyday that that I felt her move, kick, hiccup I loved her more and more...

There will be a little disappointment but overtime it won't even matter and once babe is here it will be awesome!!

We've just had a LOT of people say it to us. that have no idea of our history (that we were on clomid, however, only the lowest dose) I've also decided this one is a boy so I won't get disappointed when its not a girl lol

Before we got married, we agreed on having 5 and if we were meant to have 6 the last pg would be twins. Its always been funny until now. I have no reason to expect twins. That said I think I'll be a little disappointed either way. I have two girls names picked out! It would be sad to not use one of them. The idea of carrying and then taking care of twins is daunting. I'm choosing to not drive myself insane and try to go with the flow, but those little thoughts keep creeping in! I can't change what's already happened. I'm along for the ride at this point!

I totally understand. I was a little disappointed that my first was a single baby and not twins. People kept joking about it, and I thought it would be cool to have two kids all at once, get it all over with and be done! It's normal to be disappointed if something you're hoping for doesn't happen, but it doesn't mean you're any less happy with what does

I've decided mine is a boy as well lol for the same reasons. Although I keep saying " she and her" and correct myself because I don't want to get my hopes up.

I'm actually feeling a little opposite. I've had a few people tell me I'm having twins for one reason or another and honestly I really don't want twins. I mean if it were to happen I know, eventually, I'll be happy, but just the thought...I'm barely confident I'm ready for 1 but 2 at the same time oh goodness no lol My u/s is Monday so we'll see...

Personally I think it's a little odd, & not to mention unfair when people comment that they think someone is having twins.
My MIL used to do it with every pregnancy I went through. That said Dh has younger twin brothers, & I had older twin brothers, (one has passed away.)
We only ever had one twin pregnancy & it resulted in a singleton.
I was very much hoping this time that there would be just one, & there is

Haha I know I agree it is unfair. We don't Have any twins in our family ( that I can think of) so I know there isn't much of actual concern for it and of course I will be so happy to see a baby I won't care. I'm just ready for my ultrasound

there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a lil dissapointed! You can hope for something, it doesnt mean you wont appreciate your lil one(s) either way. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

I always hate when people guilt others for having gender disspointment and say "why cant you guys want a healthy baby?" OF COURSE they want a healthy baby! No one is thinking "Wow, I want a girl so badly, Ill take a sick girl over a healthy boy!" Ridiculous.

SAmre thing goes for you! You will love that baby no matter how many there are, so there is nothing wrong with hoping.

I know what you mean. I want twins too (had a vision a few years back of twin girls to complete my family). I have a feeling that's a real possibility this time for some strange reason and I, too, am afraid I'll be disappointed to see just one or later to see a boy. Ultimately, I want a healthy pregnancy resulting in a healthy child(ren); I just can't help but say she when I speak of this not yet human that's being formed. lol
